A Swiftly Tilting Planet (The Time Quintet, Book 3)


Back cover copy: In this companion volume to A WRINKLE IN TIME (Newberry Award Winner) and A WIND IN THE DOOR, fifteen-year-old Charles Wallace and the unicorn Gaudior undertake a perilous journey through time in a desperate attempt to stop the destruction of the world by the mad dictator Madog Branzillo. They are not alone in their quest. Charles Wallace's sister, Meg – grown and expecting her first child, but still able to enter her brother’s thoughts and emotions by “kything” – goes with him in spirit.

But in overcoming the challenges, Charles Wallace must face the ultimate test of his faith and will, as he is sent within four people from another time, there to search for a way to avert the tragedy threatening them all.

First line: The big kitchen of the Murrys' house was bright and warm, curtains drawn against the dark outside, against the rain driving past the house from the northeast.

Stats for my copy: Mass market paperback, published by Dell Publishing Co., Inc., 1980; 256 pages. I don't remember where I got it.

My thoughts: Basically the whole plot was a big convoluted mess that interested me at times and bored me at times and just confused me at times.
